very good!

Regular room was very small and all tight up, so we ask for an upgrade for 30 euros a night we got the suite which was much better. Staff and the location was great, only negative thing for us was a breakfast choice. Very poor with very limited choice.

The location is very good, close to all attractions. The hotel is very nice. The rooms are rather small. Especially the shower. Breakfast standard.

5 stars comfort

This hotel was one of the most beautiful we visited in italy. When we got there they upgraded us to the top floor in a room with balcony with a view to the backyard. It was pretty, clean, big compared to other hotel standards around. The marble bathroom was beautiful as well. The breakfast was very enjoyable in a room with big windows with a view on the garden. They also had great food! Doors of the hotel close at night for security, but there is always someone to open for you. Overall, we really loved this hotel and the 5 stars comfort.

great situation, lovely garden and good view from breakfast room

The room was fantastic (junior suite), but the lack of air conditioning made it too hot in the night. Disappointed that neither the infusion bar or music bar were open, but understand that winter brings different demands. Overall it was a lovely hotel in the right place. Tea/coffee in the room would have been nice. We will return!

Highly Recommend

My initial room looked onto an interior fire escape, and I asked to make a room change. This was immediately granted. The new room was very clean, spacious and had a lovely view to a courtyard. Amenities like shampoo, etc., could be expanded. Breakfast was good, with much variety. On a Sunday morning, all guests must have all gone to breakfast at 9, so the room was not large enough to accommodate all, and items were depleted. A back up room for such weekend occasions should be considered. A two block walk to the San Lorenzo market was a plus.

Great Stay!

My wife and I were in Florence in mid-February. We had a very nice room overlooking the courtyard. The hotel is very close to the major attractions and the breakfast was quite good, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff was very helpful.

Nice concierge, simple room, great breakfast

The room is a simple Italian style room: dark furniture, brocade bedding, clean. The hotel lobby is very modern with new computers. The concierge are nice and helpful, though dont take thier suggestion of the reataurant in san marco: very mediocre. Location is an easy walk to duomo. Breakfast buffet is the big sell: big selection of meat, mozzarella, tomatoes, pastries, juices, coffee, cereal, fruit and in nice weather you can sit and eat on their patio outside!
